    just a hint - some USB ports may not deliver enough power to the device and create some error messages, you may use another port in that case or an USB hub with its own external power supply. This is typically more of a problem on notebooks than on normal computer chassis.

    Just to add:
    besides this there is another software solution which uses a digital camera instead of a scanner:

    I have used this for quite a long time, before I decided to buy a colormunki. Which is certainly better regarding usage and results... but on the other hand colymp is far cheaper and the results are at least bettter than no profiling at all - if you are using 3rd party ink and paper.
    There is a free unlimited trial which prints out with white stripes.

    Colymp looks like it might be worth checking out, but I don't read German, and it looks like windows only at this point...

    @The Hat , thanks, but my main issue is the lack of mac support as I ditched windows a decade ago after several decades of fighting it and Linux variants.
